Rabbits are wonderful pets; they are playful and cheerful, and are excellent company.

They not only keep us owners busy but also keep us cheerful with their antics, happily hopping around the house or their hutch all day long. One of the best parts of getting a new pet rabbit, is choosing its name!

Newborn baby rabbits are known as kits or kittens until they grow up a little. When you choose a name for your new kit, you may want something unique, something cute or even something funny.

Naming your pet animal will help you to bond with him or her and will create a sense of belonging both for us humans and our pet rabbits. Rabbits learn to respond to your voice and will become more friendly once they are familiar with their owners and the people who visit them frequently.

They are even smart enough to recognize and learn to respond to their own names, so pick carefully.
